So what do you think of the decision not to be able to teach Intelligent Designs in schools (Pa. Example)….??
The judge said it was pretty overt when he looked at the original text book. In the “old copy” Creationism was used instead of the phrase intelligent design. The new textbooks did not have that phrase, instead using Idz. (Creationism being a school of thought for certain right wing fundamentals.)
To be precise–the ruling said that IDz could not be taught in a biology class because it was not a scientific theory. I support that. I have spoken. That is all.
ha ha ha.
Really, I don’t think there is anything wrong with discussing creation “myths” in school. That could serve as the basis for all kinds of discussion, and course work, including evolution. For example, you could discuss what makes a scientific theory and what does not…..
You would have to include creation myths from different cultures, the problem being by calling someone else’s creation myth a myth or a story, somebody would get offended. Why couldn’t these topics be discussed in a philosophy class or a world religions class?
